The analysis ranks the reports for each city by their average Global Review Index™, ReviewPro’s online reputation score for hotels based out of 100. The GRI is based on guest ratings from review sites and OTAs such as TripAdvisor, HolidayCheck and Booking.com.

To calculate the GRI for each hotel, ReviewPro aggregates the overall score that consumers give on more than 140 sites, and normalizes them to offset the differences in scoring systems, using an algorithm that places higher value on newer reviews to best reflect consumers’ actual perceptions.
